Yeah, looking back, sorry 'bout that. That is as good a plan as any to deal with her, and this commander is so cruel it certainly deserves to be stolen. Just getting all defensive of my favorite commander is all :P

Anyhow, speaking from experience, a really solid commander. Pop a Swiftfoot Boots on her and you'll often find your opponent grunting in frustration about what they could have played. Need some untappers? Here's some I use:
Stonybrook Angler, Fatestitcher, Tideforce Elemental, Galvanic Alchemist, Pemmin's Aura, Puppet Strings, Captain of the Mists, Thousand-Year Elixir, Crab Umbra, Niblis of the Breath, Freed from the Real, Puppeteer, Aphetto Alchemist/autocar... (see all)

Hm... Freed from the Real Mycosynth Lattice Darksteel Forge

The creature isn't sacrificed, it's destroyed when she untaps. Thus, the Forge means you get to keep it indefinitely, as well as every other creature you steal! Completely useless in anything other than casual play, but....

brb making an EDH deck. Need help finding the pieces of the combo? Fabricate Enlightened Tutor ANY BLACK TUTOR, it's like her colors were MADE for tutoring. Sounds like evil, evil fun! And the best part of that combo? Once you have it off and all your permanents are indestructible... Wrath of God Day of Judgment Nevinyrral's Disk Damnation. It's like this deck almost builds itself!

I've just started using her as a general, and I like her a lot. That deck doesn't do much at first, and she gets me from "easy target" to "deal with later".

You're thinking of making her an EDH general, aren't you? Be careful. She's incredibly effective, but she kills fun. When you get her going with a few repeatable untap effects, you can wipe your opponent's creatures in a turn and then leave them grumbling and downtrodden, not even wanting to play creatures because you'll just kill them or throw them back in their faces. She's easy to kill, but cheap enough to cast that she'll come back three or four times in a single game. Your friends will hate her, which is detrimental to the casual environment EDH was intended to create.

Crab Umbra

*read first part of card*
*think: Oh well they will just kill her after I take control of it*
*keep reading*

I'll put a crab umbra on this ***
Bitches love crab umbras

4.5/5 because they can insta remove her before she takes control of anything. But then again, thats really her only downfall, besides no haste.

Actually, no, I wasn't thinking of making her my EDH general. I have a friend who just built one with her. I haven't played him yet, but I am contemplating ways to steal her from him and use her against him with my Zur the Enchanter deck. I have plenty of thieving spells (Puca's Mischief would do it), and I can use Zur to find that Freed from the Real, Pemmin's Aura or Intruder Alarm to untap her. Nothing like screwing over a friend's control deck by turning his own general against him.


The whole heavy Blue aspect of Merieke decks is why I suggested stealing her with Puca's Mischief, rather than a more conventional route like Dominate. If you can slip Puca through when your opponent is tapped out, it is no longer counterable. Of course, there is also the fact that I could slip something like Dominate through when my opponent is tapped out as well (... (see all)

Freed From the Real makes this a constantly usable U cost spot removal, which I'm a fan of.

pemmin's aura :D

You do realize that you gain control of a creature , and you can keep taking you're opponent's creatures from a permanent's ability right? And that they don't get it back...you destroy it , so you can any big boy from their side of the field without shroud and whoop their asses with it , then you destroy it unless it has indestructibility.
